I threw a thumber at a basket that I couldnt see and it was lookin good, I heard it hit some metal so naturally I was excited, it just kinda had a funny sound to it. When I came around the corner and started looking for my 10x firebird it was in too. The number plate had cut it right in two, it had little specks of red plastic on it. I almost bent the number plate off, but instead I went to ace and found weather stripping that I cut to fit all the baskets with these disc choppers and super glued the rubber to those bitches. Wish I had pics, but I dont think is look at the pic.

Same thing happened to me years ago........... old school Mach I basket with that blade-for-a-number-plate. Cut a 2 inch slot in my Dimple disc. Funny part was that it was STUCK to the plate.

I bought a candy pro firebird off of the marketplace as a back up of a back up. A buddy had been wanting one real bad, and the latest firebird was kinda ugly so I decided I could part with it. I brought him the disc, and hes very excited about his new plastic. First throw, downshot going for a skip, hits a rock and spiderwebs the entire disc. I have never seen dreams shattered so quickly. I also regret not getting pics.

Same way you play a disc stuck in a bush. Mark it below the disc on the ground. Drop in.

My old trusty Pro Line Orc he was my go to roller on tight wooded holes, one cold morning turned on him a little too quick and plowed straight into a tree. Poor little guy didn't stand a chance! These were the only pieces i could find quickly for a pic.
